Major Marvel Snap Update Fixes Pool Rise 3, Adds Several New Maps

A new Marvel Snap update has added a bunch of new cards along with a new way to earn them.

The update, called The Power Cosmic, will add a number of new cards, including Thanos, She-Hulk, and Galactus… and perhaps most importantly, introduce collectible tokens.

“We plan to patch at 3:00 p.m. Pacific today!” said Marvel Snap creator Ben Brode. “Once you log in to the new patch, the game will review your Collector Level and grant you Collector Tokens. Have fun! I can’t wait to see the new decks everyone will be building!”

Collector Tokens are a brand new mechanic that should make it a bit easier to get the final finishing touches to your latest deck.

The idea is simple – players receive Collector Tokens by increasing their Collector Level, and these can be spent in the store to purchase new cards. Essentially, it’s a new type of currency that’s a handy way to pick up a card or two to complete your final deck.

The number of Collector Tokens you get depends on your Collector Level:

  • 500-999: 3000 tokens
  • 1000-2999: 6000 tokens
  • Over 3,000: 12,000 tokens

You can then spend those tokens on any card that appears in the new token shop. Group 3 cards will cost 1,000 tokens, group 4 cards will cost 3,000 tokens, and group 5 cards will cost 6,000 tokens.

The best part? This should make the ascent to pool 3 a bit easier.

Marvel Snap sees players progress through multiple pools of available cards, with Pool 3 being by far the most varied, consisting of 74 cards in total. The combinations are nearly endless…but it can be quite a daunting prospect for players, like me, fresh out of Pool 2.

And with the addition of a large number of cards in Pool 4, it will only get worse.

New additions include Luke Cage, Absorbing Man, She-Hulk, Titania, Maria Hill, Agent Coulson, HeliCarrier, M’Baku, Attuma, Orka, Bast, Shuri, Thanos, Galactus, Valkyrie, Super Skrull, and Silver Surfer.

Unfortunately, the patch also brings nerfs. Angela is now a 2/0 instead of a 2/1 while Mysterio is now a 2/4 instead of 2/5. Sera is now a 5/4 instead of a 5/5 and the awesome Onslaught ability now stacks additively instead of exponentially.

A bad day for Kazoo decks, perhaps. But collectible tokens certainly take the bad luck out of leveling.
